THE CHRISTIAN WALK

“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth,blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls”—-(Joel 2:28-32).
reams are experiences, events, actions and activities which men and women engage in when they sleep. The dream state is the window that opens man's spiritual antenna to both the supernatural and the Spirit world. Supernatural agents communicate to and with human beings in their dream state. Contrary to what many have expressed, it is very important for every human being to take his or her dream seriously. Nothing happens to a man, either good or bad without God Almighty, and Satan showing us respectively. This is a Spiritual Law. As free moral agents, neither God nor Satan can over-ride our will. We are at liberty to accept good from God or bad from Satan. We have a choice in what happens to us as human beings. However, much depends on our knowledge of this spiritual truth. Those who are ignorant of their right to either accept or reject what Satan or his demons show them in their dreams do so at their own peril.
A sister was once hospitalized for breast cancer. As the deadly disease was eating her left breast, she narrated what happened four months earlier. "I dreamt of my mother-in-law appearing before me with some food which she gave me to eat. Initially I rejected it but after much persuasion I took the food from her in that dream and ate.” She continued, "When I woke up that morning, I felt a strange sensation all over my body, from head to toes. I felt unusually heavy. I knew something serious had taken place in my body but didn't know what to do.” A week after this sister had this terrible dream, she started coughing. Then she noticed a small lump near the nipple of her left breast. A visit to her medical doctor afterwards confirmed breast cancer. Friend, it is extremely important for us to analyze our dreams. God is Spirit (John 4:24). He speaks to every human being, whether you are a believer or not. He is the Creator of all human beings; both believers and unbelievers but not all human beings are His children. He wants to be the Father of us all but some human beings do not want Him as their Father. Consequently, He cannot force Himself on such human beings as their Father at all costs, because His Law and Nature as the Almighty Lord God preclude Him.
But the difference is that while it is easy for the believer who has the Holy Spirit to quickly discern what God Almighty is saying to him or her in dreams, the unbeliever, on the other hand cannot understand God's message(s)-albeit, the unbeliever is physically alive but spiritually dead. It takes the Holy Spirit in a person to be able to discern spiritual matters, visions and dreams (1 Corinthians 2:14). Satan too is also a spirit albeit a fallen spirit (Isaiah 14:12, Ezekiel 28:17 and Revelation 12:10). Just as the Lord God speaks to believers and unbelievers alike indeed, all human beings; Satan and his demons too also speak to all human beings. When Satan speaks to a believer in his or her dream state, the latter, with the power and enablement of the Holy Spirit can easily understand the plans of Satan, because the believer is sensitive to the unction of the Holy Spirit, he/she can take orders from the indwelling Spirit on how to neutralize the diabolical plans of Satan. But the unbeliever does not have the Holy Spirit not to talk of ability to discern spiritual things; be it vision, revelation or dream. Thus, the unbeliever is an easy prey for Satan to execute his malevolent plans. No wonder scores of people die prematurely, are afflicted with incurable diseases, and are battling with poverty and insufficiency including sundry satanic oppressions. " My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge”
(Hosea 4:6) “Wisdom calls aloud in the street. She raises her voice in the public squares at the head of the noisy streets; she cries out in the gateway of the city she makes her speech. How long will you simple ones love your simple ways. How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? If you had responded to my rebuke I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you, but since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand. Since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke I in turn will laugh at your disaster. When disaster sweeps over you like whirlwind when distress and trouble overwhelm you....for the waywardness of the simple will kill them and the complacency of fools will destroy them,” ( Proverbs 1:20-27,32).
Most of the "powers" being ascribed to Satan and his demons today are no powers really but are born out of our ignorance of spiritual truths concerning the power of authority and dominion God Almighty gave to us as people created in His image and likeness. If you have a foe and do not know the extent of his power or strength and your own power over him, you are already defeated. Not only do unbelievers suffer from Spiritual ignorance but lamentably some Christians do. Some of our problems occur not because God wants us to suffer but for our spiritual complacence and fetish ignorance. An inactive spirit can't understand spiritual matters. The "total" man whose spirit has been "born again,” the soul regenerated and is spiritually alive is not an easy prey to Satan and the denizens of darkness. A spiritual person is one who is so sensitive to the Holy Spirit at all times, in all ways, always. Satan and the hosts of hell are on the loose and restless. They know the party will soon be over thus they have stepped up their assaults on human beings, especially God's children because time is running out. The battles we fight as Christians are daily battles and they take place first in the Spirit realm before physical manifestations. As its name depicts, a spiritual war demands spiritual alertness. Anything short of this will be calamitous both to our spiritual and physical well-being. In our series beginning this week, we want to present to our teeming readers the powers of knowing how to interpret your dreams, visions and trances. In our series in the subsequent weeks, you will find out what the Holy Spirit has revealed to the children of God which we shall share with you. Please read the series very carefully and apply the principles contained into your situations and circumstances. It will be well with you in Jesus Name, Amen.
TAKE A STAND AND DECIDE TODAY
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
Please do not proceed further with this article and subsequent articles on the interpretation of dreams, visions and trances we are about to begin, if you haven't made up your mind to accept our Lord Jesus Christ as Personal Lord and Savior. Applying the principles contained in the article series on interpretation of dreams and visions without believing in the blood -atoning sacrificial Death of Jesus Christ on Calvary and His Resurrection to Glory will not profit you a whit. It is dangerous to use the prayers in the series in your situations and circumstances without a firm commitment to be a "born-again" Christi (not a church-goer). If you are ready to accept our Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, pray the prayer of salvation below from the bottom of your heart with sincerity and faith. Then go ahead and devour the Word of God column and watch as your mountains crumble, obstacles removed and Satanic forces afflicting you completely defeated in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
“That if you confess with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved,” Roman 10:9
“I (put you name here) am a sinner. I know nothing good resides in me. For a long time I have kept You O Lord God Almighty far and away from my life. I have rebelled against you. But today O Lord, I beg for your forgiveness of my sinful and rebellious behavior. You said it in your word that "if we confess our sins, You are merciful and just to forgive and cleanse us from all unrighteousness". (John I: 5-8). I believe and trust in Your Word, O Lord! I believe that Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ came to this earth to die for my sins. I believe He went into the heart of the earth to defeat Satan and his demons and resurrected three days later with power, authority and dominion in heaven, on earth and under the earth subject to Him. This Jesus Christ who is now at the Right Hand of God Almighty in heaven is my Personal Lord and Savior. I commit my life, future, ways and tomorrow into the caring and loving Hands of this Lord Jesus. I invite Him to take total and absolute control of my life. Thank You Lord because I know, by faith You have washed me clean now and I am part of your redeemed Souls. In Jesus Mighty and Holy Name I pray, Amen.” It is done. Believe it, you’re now a child of the True and Living God Almighty. Keep a copy of this affirmation. If you like, you may email a copy to me in my email below so we at The Jesus Christ Solution Center Texas can continue to pray for you in the Lord. Welcome to the family of the Eternal and Living God. See you next week

TO OUR E-CONGREGATION ASSEMBLY
Dear Brethren, We had some technical glitches for thirty minutes on the first day of Thursday October 1, 2020 which was finally fixed for brethren to log in. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, our E-Congregation Bible Studies/ College finally kicked off with an orientation and throughout the weekend and classes begin Monday October 05, 2020.
The orientation is compulsory for all and no one will be allowed to enroll in the Bible College Courses without participating in the Orientation Program. As a matter of fact, the orientation program and sessions are the building blocks before you can build and erect the Bible School House. If you do not have the building blocks, you cannot build a house just as our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ warned us in Luke 14:28. The bottom line: if you do not participate in the Orientation Program/ Sessions this past weekend, arrange to take the Deliverance Session before enrolling for classes or do not bother to attend the E-Congregation Bible Studies/ College.

NEW COLUMN DEBUT: THE CHRONICLES:- As disclosed in this column last week, a new column known as The Chronicles will debut midweek in the Nigeria-World. As its name implies, this column will bring the past to the present in the modest of ahistorical Nigeria. Many of today’s youth have no clues of significant events that have happened in contemporary Nigeria, because to the shame of our political leaders, history is no longer taught in Nigeria. This is sad!
Dele Giwa, murdered by General Ibrahim Babangida October 19, 1986
Our first rehash of historical event is the senseless murder of one of Nigeria’s finest journalists, Mr Dele Giwa founding editor-in-Chief of Newswatch magazine in October 1986. Murdered by General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, the first and only Nigerian drug baron to become military head of state, the lugubrious act is still etch out in Nigerian history. In our debut, we shall explain the reasons General Ibrahim Babangida committed murder in 1986, the dramatis personae of the dastardly act many of who are still alive and what can still be done to bring Babangida to account for his heinous crime. Keep a date!
